Shaky movies not for me

Today, I went to see “The World, Complicated”—the shorts program part of the San Francisco Asian American Festival.

Every short was amazing. In particular, the ones with Cantonese—only because I partially understood it and the words said make it oh so more funnier. Particularly, I liked The Last Chip and Windowbreaker.

But Going Home was probably the most heartbreaking. It was also the most nauseating. That is, the shaky camera movement. Like how I felt sick after watching The Blair Witch Project, I basically stumbled out of the theater. This time, I rode a bus back to the Mission…feeling the waves of motion sickness.

They should have warnings in addition to the MPAA ratings. Warning: Severe motion sickness possible.
